Matt Ryan (Atlanta Falcons) $7100
Better days are ahead for Matt Ryan after a shaky four consecutive games and those better days start on Sunday. Ryan faces a bottom three pass defense as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers give up big fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Julio Jones is looking closer to full health again and the Ryan/Jones combination should have a hell of a day as one of the best duo plays.
Philip Rivers (San Diego Chargers) $6600
Philip Rivers is averaging a shade under 29 DraftKings points over the last four weeks. San Diego has called for Rivers to throw 34+ passes in six of the seven games so far this season. The game plan is to throw the ball and the Chargers are facing the league’s worst pass defense, the Baltimore Ravens. Rivers is by far the best quarterback value on the board this week due to a moderate price and tasty matchup.
Andy Dalton (Cincinnati Bengals) $6000
Other than Tom Brady, no quarterback is averaging more fantasy points on DraftKings this season than Andy Dalton. The usually inconsistent QB is finally becoming a consistent source of production. The Pittsburgh Steelers defense is average at best and should have trouble keeping up with the Bengals offense. As long as Dalton keeps performing at a high level and his price stays this low, you’re targeting him most weeks.
